 Not sure whether possible to tell but is the first Argyresthia cupressella? And the second one Acrobasis consociella? Oxford garden on 17 May.

  1. Hello Andrew,
    The top one is indeed Argyresthia cupressella, but the other is an Ephestia species and with that pinkish flush is almost certainly woodiella.
    Please try and remember to add a title to your posts!

  2. Thank you very much, Dave. I had three of the same Ephestias that night and most grateful for the correction. Sorry about lack of title - should remember next time.
